Turkey Stiphado


  • Heat a little oil in a large heavy-bottomed pot and saute the turkey until sealed on all sides. Remove and set aside.
  • Add the onions and potatoes to the pot and cook for a few minutes, continually stirring and scraping down the sides. Then add the allspice berries, cinnamon, wine and sugar. Reduce a little and add the balsamic, rosemary, ¼ cup pasta sauce, 1 cup stock and seasonings, the turkey, remaining stock and the pasta sauce. Mix well and bring to the boil. Then cover tightly and simmer very, very gently for about 1 hour. Taste for seasoning. 
  • When ready, cook the pasta in plenty of lightly salted, boiling water until al dente. Drain well and toss with the butter, parsley, seasonings and parmesan.
  • Serve a mound of the stew on a bed of the pasta in individual flat soup bowls.
